The legendary 1970s folk-rock pioneers return with a classic five-piece line-up.
Tyneside folk-rock pioneers Lindisfarne first grabbed the attention of the country in 1970 with their debut album Nicely Out of Tune. There followed a string of memorable albums and evergreen classics including Meet Me on the Corner, We Can Swing Together, Fog On The Tyne, Lady Eleanor and Run For Home.
In 2021 and in top form, the band is pleased to re-boot 50 Anniversary Tour dates shelved during the pandemic last year with a series of UK concerts presented by a classic five-piece line up of long-time members fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements on vocals, mandolin, fiddle and slide guitar.
With a repertoire of unforgettable songs and a reputation for live performance second to none, Lindisfarne’s power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the crowd on its feet and singing along.
Lindisfarne 2021 are: Rod Clements (1969-present) Vocal, mandolin, fiddle, guitars Dave Hull-Denholm (1994-present) Vocal, guitars; Steve Daggett (1986-present) Vocal, keyboards, guitars; Ian Thomson (1995-present) Bass, vocal; Paul Smith Drums
“Lindisfarne were the real surprise for me at the 2017 Towersey Festival. Not being of their generation I had been unsure of just how they would go down, but they stormed it. Consummate professionals and great musicians, they surprised me with just how many of their great songs I knew, and those that I didn't felt familiar. Wonderful stage presence and rapport with the audience, who I should say came in droves to see them. A no-brainer booking for me. One of the year’s festival highlights.”Joe Heap - Director - Towersey Festival
